    2010 Revelation lock out question

    Is there a way to eliminate the bar mounted lock out lever? I hate extra doodad on my bars and I never use it anyway. I searched and couldn't find an answer. Thanks

    That's what I originally thought but want to make sure it's not a hydraulic line. Up at the lever there is a positive and negative gate adjustment.

    I think TS is referring to this?

    Sorry to hijack tread.. may I ask what the the + - knob about? Is it the floodgate control knob?

    That is it. Honsetly I don't know what it does either. I do know it lockes the fork but I move the dial and feel nothing.

    that's hydraulic. it doesn't lock out the fork, it controls the floodgate. the floodgate controls the point at which the fork engages into its travel. it's essentially compression. it can control brake dive and whatnot. it firms up the suspension until you hit something hard enough to engage fork travel depending on where you set the floodgate.

    Does it work only when the lever is engaged or does that floodgate adjustment work even when the fork is in full travel mode? Thanks. Oh and the manual that came with the fork is probably the worst manual ever written

    On models with the lockout, floodgate adjusts how much pressure the fork needs to temporarily turn off the lockout. Eg if you have it locked out, then hit a big bump then the lockout will temporarily disengage.
    Satunine is describing the floodgate you get on non remote lockout forks.

    Unless the hydraulic x-loc's floodgate works differently to a cable poploc?
